James Bond 013 ?!
Reviewed in the United States on April 14, 2018
(I’m only talking about the first half of the book.)
Do you remember the 1964 movie “Goldfinger” with James Bond 007 and Oddjob with his bowler hat? This was a terrific movie!
The book we are talking about is probably for kids less than 13 years old and older people (like me). And this is a TERRIFIC book as well. This one has Oddjobz, but no James Bond 007 at all --- more like James Bond 013. Why? Because there are 13 Chapters and there PUNS GALORE!! (I even like what I wrote!) And all are connected with real James Bond movies (many of which I don’t even remember).
Here are some of the characters:
Tom (the narrator); his best friend, Pradeep; Pradeep’s his 3 year old sister, Sami; and, of course, Oddjobz. The bad guys are: Mark (Tom’s older brother) an EVIL
Scientist; and Sanj (Pradeep’s older brother) an EVIL Computer Genius).
And there are some “animals”: Tom has a ZOMBIE GOLDFISH named Frankie; Oddjobz has an octopus named Antonio; and Mark’s EVIL vampire kitten named Fang, but I don’t think it’s really evil.
A wonderful, funny book. Kudos to the author (Mo O’Hara) and illustrator (Marek Jagucki). 5 Goldfish out of 5!!!!!
Last thing about “Goldfinger”: Oddjob was Harold Sakata and he was a Olympic and professional wrestler. (I didn’t know that!)
